[ male announcer ] combat 8 signs of aging hair. nexxus youth renewal. raise your standard. so, dennis, how long have you been in america? a year and a half. no kidding. you speak english really well. so do you. except for your tendency to end sentences with prepositions. what are you talking about? that. he's not wrong. all right... and this is my office. is this part of the tour? nope. good-bye. come on, sheldon, we've hardly shown him anything.
6:03 pm
all right. this is my desk. these are my books; this is my door. please close it behind you. good-bye. looks like you're doing work in quantum loop corrections. keen observation. good-bye. you see where you went wrong don't you? leonard? (chuckles) yeah? get him out. come on, dennis. i'll show you the rec center. they've got nautilus equipment. do i look like i lift weights? not heavy ones. it's startling to me you haven't considered a lorentz invariant or field theory approach. you think i haven't considered it? you really think i haven't considered it? have you considered it? get him out, leonard. come on, dennis. i'll show you the radiation lab. wow, you won the stevenson award? yes. in fact, i am the youngest person ever to win it. really? how old? 14 and a half. hmm, you were the youngest person ever to win it.
6:04 pm
it's like looking into an obnoxious little mirror, isn't it? mmm. this is really delicious, isn't it? still can't talk to me unless you're drunk, huh? oh, sweetie, you are so damaged. hey, i'm damaged, too. how about a hug for howie? sure. raj, hug howard. (sheldon sighs) something you'd like to share? a tale of woe, perhaps? 15 years old. dennis kim is 15 years old, and he's already correcting my work. today, i went from being wolfgang amadeus mozart to... you know, that other guy. antonio salieri? oh, god, now even you're smarter than me.
6:05 pm
you know, sheldon, you don't have so many friends that you can afford to start insulting them. just eat, sheldon, you'll feel better. why waste food? in texas, when a cow goes dry, they don't keep feeding it they just take her out and shoot her between the eyes. i'm confused. did sheldon stop giving milk? you can't let this kid get to you. you always knew that someday someone would come along who was younger and smarter. yes, but i assumed i would've been dead hundreds of years and that there'd be an asterisk by his name because he'd be a cyborg. so you've got a little competition. i really don't see what the big deal is. well, of course you don't. you've never excelled at anything. i don't understand-- exactly how did he get any friends in the first place? we liked leonard. well, what are you gonna do, sheldon, just give up? yes. it's what a rational person does when his entire life's work is invalidated by a postpubescent asian wunderkind.
6:06 pm
he ceases his fruitless efforts, he donates his body to scientific research and he waits to die. you know, i'm confused again. is he waiting, or do we get to shoot him between the eyes? hey. hey. i've decided you're right. my career is not over. great. but since the arrival of dennis kim has rendered my research pointless, i just have to find something else to focus on. great. so i've decided i'm going to collaborate with you. (lackluster): great. so what exactly is it you do? i know you chatter on about it all the time, but i've never really paid attention. okay, well, right now i'm designing an experiment to study the soft component of cosmic radiation at sea level, but i really don't need any help. oh, sure you do. now, see, what's this here in the schematic? is that a laser array? yes. now, hmm...
6:07 pm
what happens if you use argon lasers instead of helium-neon? it would blow up. are you sure? pretty sure. "pretty sure" is not very scientific. is this how you normally work? just hunches and guesses and stuff? okay, sheldon, i understand that you're going through a bit of a career crisis you're searching for some other area where you can feel valuable and productive but i need to tell you something, and i want you to listen carefully. all right. go away. if you're concerned about sharing credit with me your name can go first-- i'm going. it's a small brown paper bag, ma! i'm looking in it right now. why would i make that up? there's no ding dong in it. how are two ding dongs tomorrow gonna help me today?
6:08 pm
so... this is engineering, huh? i'll talk to you later. engineering. where the noble semiskilled laborers execute the vision of those who think and dream. hello, oompah loompahs of science. sheldon, what are you doing here? i just came by to say hello. i've been in this lab for three years. you've never come by to say hello. well, up until now i've had better things to do. so, what are we making today? a small payload support structure for a european science experimental package that's going up on the next space shuttle. really? how does it work? when this is done, it will be attached to the payload bay and the sensor apparatus will rest on it. uh-huh. so it's a shelf. no, you don't understand-- during acceleration, it needs to stay perfectly level and provide... yeah, okay, it's a shelf. now, i notice you're using titanium.
6:09 pm
did you give any consideration to carbon nanotubes? they're lighter, cheaper, and have twice the tensile strength. sheldon, there's a diploma in my office that says i have a master's in engineering. and you also have a note from your mother that says, "i love you, bubula." but neither of those is a cogent argument for titanium over nanotubes. sheldon? yes? go away! did leonard tell you to say that? no, i thought of it all by myself. huh. that can't be a coincidence. there must be some causal link i'm missing. go away! curiouser and curiouser.

"build it and they will come." who will come? the jewish people. what if they don't come? we'll make it nice put out a spread. okay, well, um...
6:17 pm
speaking of spreads, we're having a small welcoming party this afternoon for mr. kim, who has agreed to join us here at the university. of course he has. the oracle told us little neo was the one. you can see the matrix can't you? okay, well, obviously you're very busy with your, uh, um... come, dennis. you'll have to excuse dr. cooper. he's been under a lot of, um... he's nuts. sheldon: ♪ ay yay yay yay ♪ ♪ hava nagilah... ♪ ♪ they'll come, they'll settle, and i'll win the prize. ♪ i really don't understand your objections, professor goldfarb. why wouldn't the sonora desert make a perfectly good promised land? go away. we could call it nuevo jerusalem. please go away. said pharaoh to moses. why are all these young women here?

6:19 pm
but close to taco stands and cheap prescription drugs would you still be able to wail at it? okay, it's definitely me. okay, we cannot leave this to chance. let's pick a girl and figure out how to get her together with dennis. okay, how about that one? uh-uh. i know the type. cheerleader, student council goes out with the jocks, won't even look at anybody in the gifted program. and if, after two years of begging she does agree to go out with you it turns out to be a setup and you're in the backseat of your mom's car with your pants off while the whole football team laughs at y... are you crying? no, i have allergies. okay, um, oh, hey, how about her? sure, if he wants to spend a couple years doing her homework while she drinks herself into a stupor with nonfat white russians. and you're the one holding her head out of the toilet while she's puking and telling you she wishes "more guys were like you." and then she gets into cornell because you wrote her essay for her and you drive up to visit her one weekend
6:20 pm
and she acts like she doesn't even know you. okay, so not her, either. oh, hey, how about her? oh, interesting, kind of pretty a little chubby, so probably low self-esteem. i think that's our girl. one of us should go talk to her. i can't talk to her-- you do it. i can't just go up and talk to her. howard, you talk to her. i don't know she'll never go for the kid once she gets a peek at this. you know, if we were in india, this would be simpler. five minutes with her dad, 20 goats and a laptop, and we'd be done. well, we're not in india. all right, why don't we do it your way then? we'll arrange for this girl to move in across the hall from dennis so he can pathetically moon over her for months on end. okay, that was uncalled for. you started it, dude. (glass clinking) could i have everyone's attention, please? what a wonderful occasion this is and how fortunate that it should happen to fall on take your daughter to work day. we're here to welcome

6:22 pm
by virtue of his youth and naiveté, has fallen prey to the inexplicable need for human contact, let me step in and assure you that my research will go on uninterrupted and that social relationships will continue to baffle and repulse me. thank you. he's back. yeah mission accomplished. forget the mission. how did that little yutz get a girl on his own? i guess times have changed since we were young. smart is the new sexy. then why do we go home alone every night? we're still smart. maybe we're too smart. so smart it's off-putting. yeah, let's go with that.
